ASCD Student Chapters

Since 1995, ASCD Student Chapters have assisted undergraduate and graduate students in education in becoming the best professional educators possible. The program provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, participate in professional development and networking programs, and become ASCD members at a reduced rate.
ASCD currently has 40 student chapters across the United States and the Caribbean with more than 1,000 members. To learn more about starting a chapter on your college campus, contact Rochelle Jones at (703) 575-5614 or send an e-mail to rjones@ascd.org.
